Green Acres is an American sitcom that graced the television screens from 1965 to 1971 on CBS. The show is set in the fictitious town of Hooterville and revolves around the lives of a New York attorney, Oliver Wendell Douglas and his glamorous wife, Lisa Douglas, portrayed by Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor respectively, who, trading the sophistication of New York, decide to migrate to the heartland for a taste of country living. Lisa, though unhappy and bewildered by her new surroundings, is a doting wife ready to walk an extra mile for her husband’s unprecedented aspirations. Albert's sophisticated performance as a man yearning for life in the countryside is hilarious, with Gabor's portrayal as a fish-out-of-water, adjusting to her new environment, is equally entertaining and filled with charm.

One of the shows highlighting the "rural comedy" boom of the 60s, Green Acres developed smack dab in the middle of the city mouse versus country mouse debate. The premise encapsulates odd-ball scenarios and satirical episodes where Lisa and Oliver’s urban placidity gets constantly challenged by the rural realm and their eccentric neighbors. This clash between sophisticated city life and charming, simplistic country life forms the base of the humor in the show, with jokes primarily drawn from the plights of the Douglases adjusting to the bucolic world around them.

The sitcom features a set of fascinating supporting characters. Pat Buttram brilliantly portrays Mr. Haney, a comical, quick-witted swindler often trying to sell overpriced, useless items to the Douglases. Tom Lester plays the role of a genial, but naive farmhand, Eb Dawson, who is often seen confusing Oliver for his "dad." The work-shy county agent Hank Kimball, portrayed by Alvy Moore, consistently baffles Oliver Douglas with his vague, roundabout conversations. The anchor to all these characters is the reliable Frank Cady as Sam Drucker, Hooterville’s general store proprietor, and the closest thing to a “normal” person that Hooterville can offer.

Further, the Ziffel family throws comedic punches here and there with their pet pig named Arnold - who fetches the paper, attends school, and is treated as a human being. The hilarity peaks when everyone in the village converses with Arnold, further amplifying the bizarre contrivances of Hooterville. Characters like energetic farmers Fred and Doris Ziffel, portrayed by Hank Patterson and Barbara Pepper, and loveable telephone operator Kate Bradley, by Bea Benaderet, add to the ensemble, imparting a toothy-grin fun element to the show.

Showcasing Jay Sommers' sterling humor, Green Acres is often seen as a parody of rural-themed shows and portrays agriculture in a goofier light. The point often driven home is that farming is not as effortless as it seems, particularly for Oliver, a city-bred attorney. Through its run, the show poses and analyses the stereotype of ‘the simpler country life,’ a narrative that was very popular amongst its contemporaries.

The recurring motif of shattering expectations further strengthens the show’s theme. Hooterville is nothing like what Oliver imagined it to be. Lisa might be a hot mess in the kitchen, but she is anything but a typical farmer’s wife. Their homestead, a "shabby" and dilapidated farm building, is far from the typical picturesque farmhouse. Yet, through all these unintended situations and quandaries, the Douglases, in their attempts to adjust and adapt, bring about laugh-out-loud instances, surprises, and hearty wholesome moments that settle well with viewers of any age.

In summary, Green Acres, with its blend of humor, eccentric yet lovable characters, and amusing scripts, stands as a timeless situational comedy. A city slicker's wildest rural fantasy turned nightmare, the show succeeds in offering pure, undiluted entertainment. It doesn't shy away from showcasing the cultural clash between urban and rural life in an over-the-top, absurd, and slapstick manner that still resounds with audiences, making it one of the classic treasures in the history of American sitcoms.

Green Acres is a series categorized as a canceled. Spanning 6 seasons with a total of 170 episodes, the show debuted on 1965. The series has earned a moderate reviews from both critics and viewers. The IMDb score stands at 7.3.
